El Tequileno has never before been available outside of Mexico until this past year. This historically important Tequila has a 60 year history. It is made in the town of Tequila, one of only 8 Tequila houses that make only their own brand. It is an ecological distillery utilizing natural volcanic spring water, wild yeast from 150 year old mango trees and composting to keep waste at a minimum. El Tequileño was recently awarded gold and silver medals at the acclaimed San Francisco Spirit Show.
One of the foremost Tequila Experts in North America will be here to lead this class. Gina Castillo has over 14 years of experience in the Tequila industry having worked as the Tequila Brand Ambassador for Diageo, both as the Latin America Brand Ambassador for Don Julio and then as the Tequila Master overseeing the ambassador program for Don Julio. Gina has taken courses with the Academia of Tequila Tasters, the Regulatory Council of Tequila, is BAR certified and has visited over 20 tequila distilleries.
